Jennifer Hudson effortlessly combined “sleek and sophisticated” with “fun and festive” on last Friday’s episode when she donned a white blouse with a black satin suit lined with feathers.
“You like my suit?” Jennifer asked upon opening the show, to raucous shouts of approval from the studio audience. Jennifer has worn quite a few suits on the show, like this bright red number and this white wonder. But this tuxedo-inspired look was the perfect ensemble to welcome legendary singer-songwriter Dionne Warwick to the show!
“When we found out the iconic Dionne Warwick was coming, we knew this look had to be a special homage to her career as a singer and performer,” said Jennifer’s stylist Verneccia “V” Étienne. “We wanted to show respect to an elder while mixing the feel with showmanship.
“While this satin suit was already custom, I felt it needed that wow factor, so I added the ostrich feathers for movement and drama,” she added.
